      Great experience! Took my family of four 7 and 9 year olds. They thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Guides were great, saw plenty of gators, turtles, and birds.
      Well worth the time and money!

      There was only a slight chill in February it the sun shone brightly. Our air boat handler maneuvered the vessel with expertise; I never felt fearful. The wildlife was out on our tour - sighting juvenile alligators and all varieties of birdlife. Not too mention the excitement of soaring on the surface of the water. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
      Really nice guide 👌 he was fun and took a lot of time, to show and explain things to us. Really great trip 👌

      Not worth it, and don’t use aviator to book if you do.
      Carolan_A, Nov 2023
      The guide was great and the boat ride was fine…. Although a little slower than we thought it would be with only one quick spurt- and we were told the larger 15 passenger boat could only top out at 28mph. There was a lot of very slow moving while the guide spoke. My biggest complaints are because of my own ignorance. We only saw one tiny little alligator during the whole trip, and it turns out that the alligators really aren’t out that often. My advice if you want to see wildlife is to check before you book to see what alligator season you’re in. Even the guide was surprised by the lack of wildlife, with the other passengers noting that there weren’t even any birds or bird noises and we only saw a couple turtles. Very disappointing. The second issue that I had is booking through Viator. Once we got here, I noticed that every savings booklet and even the airboat’s online booking site offered $25 off per person. aviator did not offer any sort of discount. I would have thought that they would have given me the best price available. I will never use them again.

      Nicholas_B, Oct 2023
      Fernando our tour captin was awesome...he kept us all intrigued simply by how he conveyed all the educational things we learned about the swamp and the peoole and things who/that occupy it...he even went out of his way so we could see a baby gator, which was really cool because this time of the year the gators are in hibernation...it was a total experience and id say we all had a blast!! Well worth it!!
